== What was done engineering wise? ==

This past week we uploaded the linux-3.2.0-23.36 and the
linux-ti-omap4-3.2.0-1412.15 kernels.  These uploads contained bug fixes
[1] which we felt were important to be resolved before the 12.04
release.  We are unaware of any other bug fixes which would warrant
uploads at this time.  We are however queuing bug fixes appropriate for
the first Precise kernel SRU.  Should we need an upload between now and
final release, we would like to have these pending fixes included.
We'll address these specifically with the release team should the
opportunity present itself.

All of our work items are now closed for Precise 12.04.
